E. 4th St. and E. 5th St., between Aves. C and D, New York, NY 10009, United States

Located in the East Village on Fifth St. between Aves. C and D, El Jardin del Paraíso was created in the early 1980s after nearly a dozen tenement buildings were torn down, leaving the space full of rubble and ripe for crime activity. The homesteading and gardening movements saved the lot by turning it into a green space, where a community garden could be created. In the past few years, El Jardin has seen many renovations and additions, such as artist Roderick Romero’s octagon-shaped tree house that was built around one of the park’s willow trees.
